On 23 May, the Government published its Approach to the Northern Ireland Protocol document. It confirms that there will be Brexit checks on animals and food goods entering NI from the rest of the UK from next January.

The announcement comes months after Boris Johnson pledged there would be no checks on trade crossing the Irish Sea - telling businesses that if anyone asked them to fill in new paperwork, they could "throw it in the bin."

The arrangements have been put in place as part of the deal struck between Boris Johnson and the EU in January to avoid a hard border on the island of Ireland.
